About the Event
We’re buzzed up talking about pollinators this session, digging into what you can do to increase the population of bees, butterflies, beetles and why pollinators are so vital to creating and maintaining a healthy habitat and ecosystem. Learn about identifying what pollinators are already on your land along with resources to increase the population. Connect with conservation experts, meet other inspiring Wisconsin women that share your love for the land and pollinators, and learn about NRCS resources to support your conservation goals.
Session will be recorded and link sent to all registrants.
